Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
80% Alive (2019) A movie that will definitely please horror fans and one that will make you think about the ending long after it has finished. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

89% Two Heads Creek (2019) For those who are interested in plot and characters, the reasoning behind the horror takes a little while to sink in, but when it does and the villains are revealed for their evil motives, the audience may realise all too late that the plot is thin.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

78% Homewrecker (2019) Homewrecker is a laugh out loud horror comedy that gives an audience everything they may want from the genre. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

84% 1BR (2020) The final twist in the movie's final moments also seems a little unnecessary...the audience may have been taken in and put under the spell of Sarah's experiences with the cult. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

63% Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss (2020) Considering the comedic talents of Micucci, Waititi and Harmon, it's baffling as to why they were involved in Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss and why they didn't have anything better to do. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

46% A Rainy Day in New York (2019) For those wishing to watch something that takes their minds off how troubling the world is these days, A Rainy Day in New York is only going to make your blood boil over. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

81% To the Stars (2020) To the Stars wants to remind us that however bad we think things may be now, back then there were times where it felt like there was nobody there to support those who felt differently. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

78% Blood Machines (2019) Being able to put all the elements together is quite a task and the results are bound to please those who share the director's interests. However, making a psychedelic Lovecraftian Bond title sequence may not be what everyone is looking for. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

No Score Yet Bombshells And Dollies (2020) Bombshells and Dollies may not entirely convert people who judge the Pin-Up lifestyle at face value, but it shows how much fun and confidence it gives the people who indulge in the lifestyle...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

81% Porno (2020) Well played by its cast, Porno is just the thing to quench the thirst of horror fans and those looking for a little movie nostalgia.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

88% The Dalai Lama: Scientist (2020) It would have perhaps been more interesting to hear more about how science has influenced The Dalai Lama's life personally, but it seems that the documentary has a set quota to fill. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

100% Rewind (2020) Rewind is not only a heart-breaking story of abuse and the imbalance of justice, but it shows that there is still life, hope and a future even for those who have been so deeply hurt. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted May 8, 2020
94% Capital in the Twenty-First Century (2020) This film serves as a reminder of what lessons we have to learn from our political & economic history. It reminds us that if we don't heed the warning signs from history that led us down the wrong path, we may be doomed to go there all over again.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

94% Faith Based (2020) What could have been a film that takes a cynical, sniggering swipe at Hollywood and Christianity while trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator turns into a comedy with a real heart at its centre.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted May 1, 2020
95% The Shadow of Violence (2019) What starts off as something rather predictable ends far more emotionally than anyone could have imagined and it's down to Jarvis' great performance.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2020
80% A Faithful Man (L'homme fidèle) (2019) A Faithful Man gives its audience pause for thought as it comes to its final moments and feels more substantial than its short running time, but its mixture of dark comedy and underlying drama manages to keep a steady balance.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2020
90% Blood Quantum (2020) The occasional cliché can be forgiven as they are staples of the genre, but Blood Quantum shows that with the right voices behind the camera, there may still be some weight left in a genre that many think may have run out of ideas. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

44% Robert the Bruce (2019) Robert the Bruce misses so many opportunities and it seems that a lot of that lies in the restraints of the budget. The costumes look wonderful, the Scottish accents are mostly ok...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2020
No Score Yet Case 347 (2020) It's all well and good to have characters in a found footage movie talk to each other without having to explain everything to the audience, but by substituting exposition for cliché, jump scares and a melodramatic finale...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2020
No Score Yet It All Begins With a Song: The Story of the Nashville Songwriter (2020) It leaves the audience in awe at the talent and drive that these inspirational songwriters have that inspire the audience they'll never even meet. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2020
60% 15 Years (2020) 15 years is a slow-moving drama that not everybody may understand and some may not relate to‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2020
No Score Yet Tombstone-Rashomon (2016) As a link to Rashomon it doesn't work because there have been so many mockumentaries throughout cinema that it feels like the attempt to link the two is yet another attempt to suggest the filmmakers are cleverer than they really are.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

25% The Host (2020) The Host leaves the audience waiting for the film to be over and reach its inevitable end. It also doesn't help that a final twist leaves the audience groaning as it is as pointless as the first.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2020
44% The Perished (2019) Perhaps early on there should have been a decision to either make the movie a kitchen sink drama or a horror, because by the end the horror inflected drama doesn't work as well as the filmmakers may have liked. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2020
88% Swallow (2020) Swallow is indeed a terrifying horror movie, but one that says more about everyday life reminding the audience that the scariest things can be in our own minds.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2020
71% Butt Boy (2020) Butt Boy's premise spreads itself too wide and to the point where it's not funny anymore and the audience may just want to pull out before it's over.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2020
44% Cuck (2019) It is unfortunate that Cuck does go down the route that audiences may expect from a film such as this, however as this story is as relevant now as it ever was.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

93% The Great Buster: A Celebration (2018) For those fans who think they may have seen everything Keaton had to offer, this documentary may even show fans a little bit more. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2020
100% Max Winslow and the House of Secrets (2020) Children will enjoy the movie and who knows, perhaps it will encourage them in later years to watch the horror films it's influenced by that they are currently too young to enjoy.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2020
No Score Yet Transference: Escape the Dark (2020) Transference is as dull and forgettable as its characters and really doesn't offer the audience any surprises. A little character development and bonding between the characters may have helped, but as far as the story goes, nobody should really care.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

95% Come As You Are (2020) The film is only going to appeal to an able-bodied audience who has never interacted with a disabled person and will think that brothels are the only option and that it's the same for everyone.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2020
96% Blood on Her Name (2020) Blood on Her Name isn't very surprising in terms of its plot (bar the final act perhaps), but there is just enough to keep the audience invested even though deep in their hearts they know the story will not end well for everyone.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2020
78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey (yes, I am going to keep using that title) is a fast, frenetic and fun movie with great action set pieces, a great soundtrack and you may never see your local takeaway shop in the same way even again.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2020
96% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Gottsagen's performance shows that a disabled actor can still have the range that an able-bodied actor can have and still have the presence to drive a film all by themselves. Hopefully other film makers will take notice and follow suit.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

57% Go Down Death (2014) For those who enjoy a film where every little detail is not laid out in front of you and a lot is open to interpretation then Go Down Death may be the film for you‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

83% My Hindu Friend (Meu amigo Hindu) (2020) My Hindu Friend is a celebration of life, love and art and everything that goes with it - the good and the bad. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
No Score Yet The Wake of Light (2019) Beautifully shot and paying homage in part to What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Wake of Light may not be the most original storyline but it's all about the journey on which the film takes its audience and not the destination.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2020
93% Fighting with My Family (2019) As the movie progresses it brings up issues such as body image, sibling rivalry and what it means to be a woman in the public eye, so even if wrestling is not your thing there may be something in the movie that strikes a chord.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2019
100% The Fare (2019) As the final act kicks in, the way the story plays out may get a little too romantic for some tastes, but for old romantics who haven't quite lost all hope it's a wonderful, slightly strange and thoughtful romantic drama.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2019
94% It Must Be Heaven (2019) Although there may be moments that go over the heads of the audience that may be less informed of Sulieman's background and Palestine's place in the world, It Must be Heaven shows that there is still a place in the world for such a unique voice.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
67% Red Letter Day (2019) Despite its initial slow start, Red Letter Day turns into a satisfying horror comedy that cleverly makes a sleepy little neighbourhood wake up and as the violence, horror and the black comedy laughs ensue...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) With nostalgia comes retrospect and Dark Fate undoubtedly shows that the franchise will never be as good as it was all those years ago.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2019
48% Eli (2019) Many may tire of the clichés and predictable jump scares that litter the movie, but for those who know exactly what they want from a horror movie and are not expecting to be blown away, Eli is enough fun to entertain.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2019
60% Scarborough (2019) Scarborough plays at a distance to its audience, making them feel like observers rather than getting them involved and so the end result feels somewhat empty. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese

No Score Yet Ai Weiwei: Yours Truly (2020) Whether you're a fan of Ai Weiwei's work or you are completely unaware of him, Ai Weiwei: Yours Truly shows not only the importance of activism and freedom of speech but also highlights that wherever you are in the world...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2019
No Score Yet Beyond the Bolex (2018) For those who understand the drive and passion behind filmmaking, the documentary has all the heart and passion of its visionary inventor. ‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
36% Out of Blue (2019) Out of Blue could have been a detective story that leant into the clichés with reckless abandon and given its audience an interesting story, great performances and enough to keep them interested. Unfortunately, it fails on all accounts.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2019
75% I Trapped The Devil (2019) I Trapped the Devil is an ambitious idea, but beyond the premise it doesn't deliver on what it promises.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2019
No Score Yet Kathryn Upside Down (2019) The movie is predictable but I think that's part of the charm of the film. Kathryn surely cannot stay the way that she is throughout the movie so to see her progression and her character arc is pleasing for the audience...‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
No Score Yet Between the Darkness (Come, Said the Night) (2018) This movie truly delivers what it sets out to do but also manages to give the audience a little bit more to think about than they were expecting.‐ Battle Royale With Cheese
